Pergamum, located about twenty kilometers from the coast Mysian was in a fertile region. The city enjoyed a period of splendor under the strong domination of Attalids. Pergamon was the place where the eunuch Philétaire kept the treasure of Lysimachus, composed of more than 9,000 talents (over 200 tons of metal). Philétaire betrays first to Lysimachus Seleucus, before proclaiming independent, keeping the loot on his behalf, causing the proverbial prosperity of Pergamum. The New Kingdom saw a major economic prosperity after the Peace of Apamea in 188 BC, dying in 133 BC, Attalus III bequeathed his kingdom to the Romans who founded the province of Asia with Pergamon capital. The city was famous for its library and sanctuary dedicated to Asclepius.
